** Inverted with [[spoiler: Nacht]], who was ''thrilled'' to learn that the insane supervillainess who raised her wasn't her birth mother, even though she still doesn't know who her real mother was.
--> ''Don't be [sad for me]. I'm free of her. I can leave [[spoiler: Marzena]] behind in my heart, like I have in my life. Like I told her, today I got the very best Christmas present ever: a mother who's not HER. Now I have someone who I can love with my whole heart, without all of [[spoiler: Marzena]]'s crap mucking it up. I don't even have to know who she is; I can love her anyway.''

--> ''Well, I must have been a very good little girl this year. Santa's brought me three of the very bestest presents EVER! He brought me this locket, which I've wanted, like, FOREVER, and he brought me freedom from having to obey YOU, and best of all, he brought me a MOTHER. And she's not YOU.''

* Zigzagged. The titular character from Creator/OscarWilde's ''The Star Child'' is the adoptive son of a poor woodcutter, who believes that he's actually born from an actual star. He is then approached by a beggar woman, who claims to be his biological mother, but the vain star-child cruelly rejects this notion and mocks the woman instead. He is then cursed to become ugly and despised by everyone until he learns humility, after which the beggar woman reveals herself to be the Queen, and takes the child back to be the crown prince and eventually crowned king.

[[IThoughtItMeant You may be looking]] for the DarkerAndEdgier version known as ChangelingTale, which is the source of the name. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/changeling A changeling]] is an [[TheFairFolk elf/troll/gremlin/etc.]] baby that gets swapped for a human baby and ends up being raised by humans (or the baby is merely abducted and [[WildChild raised by elves]]). It's very common in [[FairyTaleTropes medieval folklore]]. '''''Examples of fairy abduction should go there, not here.'''''

* In ''TheBadSeed'', Christine Penmark has always had this thought in the back of her mind that she was adopted, though unlike most examples of this trope, the idea fills her with horror. Her parents profusely deny this, and her friends assure her that this is a common childhood fantasy and no more. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for her, it turns out that she was right, and her biological mother was a psychopathic serial killer… who may have passed on her murderous nature to Christine's daughter.]]

* In ChroniclesOfNick and TheDarkHunters, this is usually a bad thing. Your absent parent is usually a demon or a [[JerkassGods jerkass god]], so you will probably have [[WhoWantsToLiveForever a long, but emotionally and mentally tiring life]] that will make you bitter against those [[HumansAreMorons stupid humans]].
